Sì, coronar vogl’io
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Sì, coronar vogl’io
col nobil serto d’or
al dolce mio tesor
la fronte vaga.

Equale nel desio
la gioia allor sarà;
più da bramar non ha
l’alma già paga.

Yes, I wish to crown
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Yes, I wish to crown 
the gracious brow 
of my sweet treasure
with a wreath of gold.

My joy shall be equal
to all my desire,
and my soul, now fulfilled,
covets nothing more.
